Nets down to 17 players after waiving camp invites

As expected, the Nets waived three players Wednesday night, bringing their roster down to 17 players: 15 guaranteed contracts and a pair of two-way deals.

The Nets requested waivers on guards Milton Doyle and Jeremy Senglin and forward Akil Mitchell. Doyle and Senglin originally signed as free agents with the Nets on August 4, while Mitchell inked a free agent deal with Brooklyn on September 24.

The three are now expected to join the Long Island Nets as the G League club begins to construct its 2017-18 roster. In addition to Doyle, Senglin and Mitchell, reports over the last two days indicated that two members of last year’s roster, Trahson Burrell and Prince Ibeh, will return to Long Island. The G League Draft is October 21.

The Nets signed two players — Jacob Wiley and Yakuba Ouattara — to two way deals earlier in the summer. Wiley and Outtara would spend most of their seasons in Long Island, but the Nets would retain their rights and move them freely between the NBA and G League. The Nets could also cut either of the two and sign other players to two-way deals.

The Long Island Nets season begins November 4, with training camp set to open on October 23.
